Eno Explosion

I *really* wanted to make a lava lamp, but the only giant beaker type thing I have is a Sangria Jar, and I *really* didn't want it to get all mucky with oil. We also didn't have Alka-Seltzer tablets. So what we did was kinna halfway there.

What we had was: 8 Eno sachets, a sangria jar, water, paint and and coupla marbles and clips to do a sink and float experiment too.

He first diluted paint in a container and poured it into the Sangria Jar filled halfway with water. Then he dunked stuff one by one to see if it sank or floated, which was followed by hilarious vocabulary: It sanked! It Sinked! It is sanking! .....huh...I gave up!

Eno is alternative to Alka Seltzer Effervescent tablets, its a powder that creates a fizzy effect with added to water, and is ingested to negate acidity. He cut one sachet and poured it in, but it created just a bit of fizz on the surface, as one sachet is meant for one glass of water. So I asked him to cut the remaining sachets and collect them all in a cup.

Then he poured in eno collected from all 7 sachets all at once into the sangria jar.

That created the fizzy explosion! Very similar to Baking Soda & Vinegar explosions!

Sadly enough we had only those few sachets and couldn't repeat the experiment! Next time I'll get a whole bottle!
